Campus Housing: The social environment is valuable, but the actual value of the halls do not match the price.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is overall great but safety is a concern.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life runs rampant on campus. From parties to just influence in general. I personally know a lot of non-Greeks who think Greeks are snobby but I also know some who just like them for the parties.

Athletics: We have one of the best basketball teams in the nation and we have engaging fans and school spirit to support this. The facilities are up to date, and it is very clear that athletics are essential to my school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All in all, it's a great school. I am rather antisocial, so that does not make my stay here too enjoyable; however, I am learning a great amount, and I am gaining experience in a field that I enjoy.

Health & Safety: Campus is pretty safe, as the city itself is. But its always good to watchout for anything.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school has great opportunities overall, but for some careers there are lesser quality programs.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It is quite expensive and not so spacious, but very well located and in general good social atmosphere.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Very messy, and expensive to get in. But they d have a great diversity.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Very good teams for most sports, but probably they are overated.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: IU has a beutiful big campus at Bloomington an.d besides good installations overall, the teachers are awesome. Except maybe for some of the big Gen-Ed classes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Even though I am a new student, I feel in love the minute I stepped on campus. I am a direct admit student to the Kelley School of Business and the teachers and staff are amazing. I can't wait for all the opportunities :)

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have liked my professors so far. I may have had one professor that may not have been the best. However, overall, they are always willing to help. Many of the science classes take place in large lecture halls, and the liberal arts classes are relatively smaller. The smaller classes do provide a better relationship with the professors. Going to office hours can definitely play a role on your grade.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a career-development center which is always helpful for students. Students should definitely meet with a career advisor if they are not sure about what they want to do in the future. There are also hundreds of jobs available on campus and the overall quality is good. Hours are flexible, and students are paid relatively well.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety and health on campus is very enforced. Administrators, staff, and faculty make sure to educate students on the resources available on campus. Unfortunately, there have been cases of sexual assault on campus. This does have to do with the party lifestyle of my school. However, authorities and administrators are doing everything they can to prevent such outcomes. I personally do feel safe on campus. However, when it is very late at night, I would never walk alone. I would walk with two or three friends, and have defensive measures, such as pepper-spray. I advise people to be aware of their surroundings during odd times.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love IU so far. It has been a great experience, even though I am only just starting my sophomore year. I do not regret choosing this school because it has provided me diversity, advice, and community-spirit. I have formed some strong connection with my advisors and educators. There are so many activities available on campus. There are all kinds of clubs from language clubs to pre-med clubs. In addition, the research facilities are incredible. I always feel at home at Indiana University.

Greek Life: So far, I have not had a problem with Greek life. I have been to a few parties, and all of the people I have met have been nothing but nice to me. I do think a big part of IU's image is contributed to by the Greeks. Greek students can be viewed as cliquey, but I think it is because they are usually seen together. I have found them to be pretty nice people, however, even though I am a non-Greek. There are many kinds of Greek housing available. I am not an expert on that, but many of my friends have had good things to say about it.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
